 Kaitlyn Whitteker
NC Museum of Natural Sciences
Kaitlyn Whitteker volunteers with the NC Museum of Natural Sciences Paleontology Unit, predominantly in fossil preparation. By necessity, fossil preparation is slow and laborious, requiring high levels of focus, manual dexterity, and precision. Although Kaitlyn’s work is complicated by musculoskeletal tremors, she displays mental and physical fortitude, optimism, and enthusiasm. She has become one of the museum’s most prolific volunteers, assisting the Paleontology staff in the care and preparation of roughly ten fossil specimens per year (a quantity full-time staff rarely attain). She has become a teacher and colleague to many in the lab and is always willing to assist staff and other volunteers with questions and projects. Kaitlyn is a huge asset to the Paleontology program.
Thank you, Kaitlyn, for the work you do to support  this museum for the public benefit!
